Back to Basics
Digital marketing can get complicated fast. Whether you’re starting from scratch or looking to supercharge an existing digital marketing campaign, it’s important to begin with the basics.
That means repeatedly asking yourself seemingly obvious questions like, “What do I want?” and “Why?” The kinds of questions whose answers we often take for granted, but would have a hard time articulating, if actually asked.
4 Steps to Success
These four steps will help you lay the foundation for a successful digital marketing campaign by focusing your attention on the basics. Without them, you’re liable to Google search your way into a dozen free-trials for software you don’t really need.
Here are the four steps:
- Define your goal
- Make a plan
- Take action
- Measure results
Simple enough, right? However, people have a tendency to skip straight to Step 3. And it can work. But it either works, and then they don’t know what to do next, or it doesn’t, and they give up entirely.
The digital marketer who has clearly defined goals and KPIs can minimize the impact of a failed campaign and maximize the impact of a successful one.
